DP2 Challenge #132 What's your favorite color combination

Hello to all Mo's fans out there. It's Thursday and time for another challenge from DP2 Challenge Blog

I have two cards and two note books using MY favorite color combination. Well truth be told, I have several favorite combo's but since we've parented Jordan and the twins for the past 14 months I decided to use pink and green. Why? Because one twin always wore pink hair bows and the other wore green. So I've pulled this little gift set together to give to the teachers who have cared for them at Parent's Day Out during this past year.
At the time of this post the children will be gone from our home, but home with their mom! Okay, so let's get on with the business at is a picture of the two cards and their matching note books...
I used Twins in Tutu's and Sophie for my project and you can purchase these and tons of other images from Mo at her shop.

Now I will show you some close up details. Following is a photo of just the two cards...

Here's a close up of the coloring on one of the cards...

On the inside I used a Magnolia Fence Die and also the Vintage Lace Die for my sentiment. I used Baker's
Twine to tie a little bow on the tag

Here's a look at the tag out...there is a personal note to each teacher on the back of the tag...

Here is a close up look at how I colored Sophie. You'll notice that on one card I colored the dress pink and
on the other I colored the dress green...

And here she is on the note books...
